Description

The PT8DN, using a high cycle plastic-hybrid potentiometer, communicates via DeviceNET™ protocol with programmable controllers in factories and harsh environments requiring linear position measurements in ranges up to 60”.

As a member of our innovative family of NEMA 4 rated cable actuated sensors, the PT8DN installs in minutes by simply mounting its body to a fixed surface and attaching its cable to the movable object. Perfect parallel alignment not required.
